Solanum melongena

One of my favourite, most versatile eggplants in the garden is the Ping Tung Long variety. They are a popular purple Asian eggplant variety with long, slim fruit. I find them very prolific in my garden, giving plenty of fruit throughout the warm season. They're tender and absolutely delicious when steamed and drizzled with sauce.
